I dont think Irish supporters in any code have been found wanting in defeat. But I hope the English team show a bit more respect for our head of state than they did under Martin Johnson last time.
Croke Park - personally I'd like to see the rugby played there, the atmosphere would be intimidating and there would be more tickets available. Unfortunately the GAA wont even allow a debate from within their own organisation so there's not much hope.
I don't think I'd want the English soccer fans in there or in any stadium for that matter.
